New: Needed - Paraprofessional Substitutes

EVHS is in need of caring adults to work as clerical substitutes (paraprofessionals) working directly with students throughout the school day. As a paraprofessional substitute, your primary task is to assist our teaching staff in the classroom to support students that need a little extra help throughout the day. Being a substitute allows you the flexibility of working when you have time in your personal schedule – this could be one day/week or five days/week. These positions are essential in order to provide the needed supports for students throughout the school day.

The clerical substitute requirements include:

• High school diploma

• Must be able to pass a pre-employment physical (paid for by the District)

• Must be able to pass a pre-employment background check (paid for by the applicant)

• Must complete a Personal Care Assistant Certificate of Training

• Must attend a new hire orientation

Health & Safety

Masks Required on Buses and Inside Schools

State officials have given school districts the responsibility to determine COVID-19 mitigation strategies at the local level this school year. The 2021-22 COVID-19 Operational Plan for Families, Students and Visitors to Schools that was unanimously approved by our School Board on August 26 requires all students, staff and visitors in all District 196 buildings to wear a face mask indoors when the local transmission level is “substantial” or “high” as measured by the CDC transmission matrix. Currently, the transmission level in Dakota County is high, meaning face masks will be required in our schools to start the year, just as they are required to enter a growing number of businesses, government buildings and on all public transportation and airline flights.

Your partnership is critical to the success of our students. We expect students, staff and visitors to comply with the mask requirement, as outlined in Administrative Regulation 708.7, COVID-19 Masks, until the COVID-19 spread in Dakota County drops to the “moderate” level of transmission. Masks help reduce spread and give us the best opportunity to provide consistent in-person education all year. Just like last year, students will have opportunities for mask breaks during the day, such as at lunch or while outside. If parents and guardians are concerned about their child’s ability to safely wear a mask, they should refer back to Administrative Regulation 708.7 COVID-19 Masks.

Our district is committed to doing all we can to ensure students can continue learning in person this school year. This includes HEPA filters in all learning spaces, social distancing, recommending COVID-19 vaccinations for those who are eligible to receive them and requiring masks when the local transmission level is substantial or high.

Review and Update Emergency Information

If you haven’t already done so, please update your family’s information on record with the district by completing the online review in your Infinite Campus Parent portal account. This is the one time each year the district asks parents to complete the review to ensure schools have up-to-date contact information, emergency contacts, student health records and more. It is important for schools to have current information in order to be notified in case of emergency, changes in the school schedule and to receive regular communication from the schools and district.

All District 196 parents and guardians are encouraged to have an Infinite Campus Parent account of their own to stay involved in their child’s education, and to access end-of-term report cards, transcripts, attendance and other important information. Parents who do not have their own Infinite Campus Parent account can request an activation key from the office at their child’s school. For information on setting up an Infinite Campus Parent account and completing the online review, visit the Family Resources page on our district website.

We look forward to partnering with you to make 2021-22 a safe, fun and productive school year for all of our students and families.

New: Sports Results/Scoreboard



The Eastview Girls Cross Country Team participated at the Rochester Mayo invitational yesterday. JV ran first placing 5th overall as a team. Brigid Coyne, Elsie Warren. Sam Artwohl, Morgan Brown had big PR’s. The Varsity team was led by Emily Percival, Hadley Knight and Sonja Olson who placed in the top 20. The Varsity team was third overall out of the 20 team field.


On a warm sunny afternoon the boys cross country team competed at the Mayo Invitational today. The varsity team finished in 5th place out of 24 teams, and the JV team finished in 4th place out of 17 teams.

In the JV race the team took a strong position at the start of the race, placing themselves at the front end of the chase pack. Leading this group was junior Thomas Adamson who lead the Lightning squad through the first 4,000m of the race, only to be overtaken by senior teammate Alex Breimhurst on the final downhill of the race. Breimhurst finished in a new personal best time, breaking 19:00 for the first time and finishing in 14th place. Adamson finished in 17th place. The other members of the scoring team for the JV athletes were junior Charley Setterlund in 23rd place, junior Eli Munson in 28th place, and senior Ryan Brandel in 34th place. Freshman Eli Zillhardt had a big PR today, running 40 seconds faster than he has previously.

In the varsity race the Lightning were lead by the senior duo of Hunter Dunne and Nate Getman who finished in 14th and 15th place overall. These two lost contact with the lead pack after the first 1,000m, but stuck together to keep the gap at the front of the race from growing, and put on a huge surge over the final 600m to catch members of this pack that had fallen off. Senior PJ Lasota had a strong performance to maintain his positioning in the midst of the second chase pack to finish in 32nd place. Seniors Max Leach and Ethan Agoranos rounded out the top 5 for the Lightning.

For complete results please visit our schedule/results page.


The girls Varsity tennis has put together a 3 match winning streak defeating Prior Lake, Rosemount, and Farmington the team is working hard and improving every day. Next week is a busy week for the Lightning with four matches; three at home.
